A complete renovation with remodeled interior was done in 2001 as part of the Library's Adopt-a-Branch program. The first floor, with the original floor-to-ceiling windows and striking wood details, holds the adult and young adult collections. The second floor is devoted to the children's collection. The third floor contains a bright, spacious community room and a children's story-hour room. The lower level contains the Chinese Heritage Collection, a unique collection of materials in English and Chinese. The Chatham Square Library is one of the busiest branches of The New York Public Library and our annual Summer Reading Celebration is legendary, drawing hundreds of children to the community room each August.
